A good place to eat with nice ambiance. One of the most recommended places to eat. Food can be spotty however and house wine was $10 US a glass and not all that good.

My wife and I visited Maya Beach twice in the last week, once for lunch and once for dinner. Their food and drinks are probably the best we had while traveling to multiple spots up and down the Belizean coast. Costs are reasonable for Belize...More

We're certainly far from perfect, but we do try our best to create a winning experience for every single customer, whether they are hotel guests, Belizean neighbors or travelers staying at other hotels. Try pairing small plates with wines, choose from our creative main courses, or just enjoy some comfort food for breakfast or lunch. It's fun for us to meet new people and, well, just make them happy! Our casual beach bistro focuses on unique sauces and contemporary, tropical-themed flavor combinations while maintaining comfortable portions. Lots of fish and seafood. Bar service includes a 130-bottle wine list, local beer, rum drinks, and house specials. The outdoor atmosphere is casual so you can be comfortable in flip flops. Belize's "Restaurant of the Year" award was presented twice to the Bistro in June 2011 and May 2013.
